About The Hermit Creative

Hi, my name is Kirsten and I am an introverted creative.   My friends would tell you that I am a wee bit of a hermit – hence the blog name.  Especially, when I get involved with a creative project.  I am happy as can be just sitting in my room creating on my iPad or painting with Watercolors.

I am an art class junkie who can’t get enough of SkillShare, Udemy, and Domestika. I am primarly a digital artist using Procreate, Photoshop, and my iPad. But I am currently venturing into traditional watercolors and acrylics.

I also love to write poetry (NaPoWriMo is just around the corner) flash fiction, and short stories.  My mind is a constant whirlwind of creative of energy.  I have decided to see that as a blessing.

I am also the Creative Director of Healing Thoughts Online.  An online blog that uses multimedia to show people Jesus’ healing power at work in our world today.  Visit Healing Thoughts

Welcome to my little corner of the web.  I hope you enjoy my collection of creative hodgepodge.  Read more

So, last night I got these really cool alcohol ink Procreate brushes from Alaina Jensen on Gumroad. She has this wave tutorial on YouTube. I didn’t use all the same brushes or colors she used, but it was great fun!
